Jack Gleeson, who played the detestable King Joffrey Baratheon on the first four seasons of the HBO drama, has married his girlfriend Róisín O'Mahony. The couple wed in a small ceremony in County Kerry, Ireland, which was revealed, naturally, on social media by their priest.
Father Patsy Lynch posted a series of photos of the newlyweds—including two of himself posing with them—on Twitter Aug. 29. The photos, which show the couple smiling in their casual wedding attire, were captioned: "Very simple, prayerful and dignified marriage ceremony for Film Celebrity Jason Gleeson and Roisin: The Glen Church."
Despite the priest getting the actor's first name wrong in his tweet, Lynch responded to a comment on the photos gleefully, writing, "It was an amazing celebration. Everyone was so relaxed. I will treasure so many memories of this special day."
When another commenter praised the small nature of the wedding, Lynch responded, "I agree. This simple wedding ceremony was amazing because of its simplicity and families coming together to celebrate."
Who knew the priesthood was so social media savvy?
After his character was dramatically killed off Game of Thrones in 2014, Gleeson took a six-year break from acting. He returned to the screen in the 2020 BBC miniseries Out of Her Mind and appeared in the 2021 film Rebecca's Boyfriend.
O'Mahony is an actress and performer herself, most recently appearing in an episode of the UK sitcom Back. Her show Róisín and Chiara: Sex on Wheels, performed with comedy partner Chiara Goldsmith, recently completed a run at the Edinburgh International Festival.
But soon the two will be returning down the aisle as Father Lynch shared in an interview with The Irish Independent, Father Lynch said the gathering was merely a "pre-wedding" and the couple is planning another ceremony for a later date in England.
